Remote Attendance Tracking
RMA follows guidance from TEA regarding how remote-student engagement will be tracked using one of these three outlined methods:
1) Measurable Progress within Learning Management System (Edgenuity): Students will complete direct instruction, performance tasks, and assessments in each subject area, ensuring subject-matter mastery. To ensure students are on track with the scope and sequence, a daily pacing percentage has been established.
- 2.5% Progress per scheduled class, per instructional day
2) Assignment completion/submission: Each unit includes warm-ups, assignments, quizzes, unit tests, and other submissions. The completion and submission of activities will account for student engagement.
3) Engagement with Teacher: Students may engage in synchronous learning with teachers on a schedule defined by their teacher. Teachers will check in with their students weekly and will schedule additional support as needed using one of the following:
- Small-Group Tutoring Session
- Small-Group Intervention Session
- One-on-One Session
A Letter from our Superintendent
Dear Parents/Guardians of RMA Schools, We want to make sure you have accurate information regarding how RMA is handling concerns about the coronavirus and recent media coverage surrounding the respiratory illness. I want to assure you that RMA is keeping track of the situation through proven and trustworthy sources: Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are following guidance received from the CDC regarding appropriate infection control measures. These health officials believe the risk to our school community is low at this time.
Based on the current information, health officials are recommending local communities and schools should take the same steps to protect against coronavirus as we take to prevent the spread of everyday illnesses like the common cold or the flu:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
While a new type of illness can be alarming, we can help protect our students, teachers, and community by using simple everyday actions that protect people from other types of respiratory viruses. Our teachers and staff are working carefully to encourage these simple and effective habits of frequent handwashing, covering every cough or sneeze. Our custodial services will also be cleaning and disinfecting classroom tables/surfaces daily. This is important not just to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, but to help prevent the spread of other infections that can lead to student illness and absences.

Thank you for your support.
